The DCH Health System in Tuscaloosa is asking for donations of touchless thermometers to use to screen visitors and employees that enter the hospitals
“Dear Community – We are so grateful for the offers everyone has made to us for so many things,” a post to DCH’s Facebook page read. “We have promised that we would let you know if a need arose, and it has.
“For us to keep patients safe and allow limited visitors and employees to enter our buildings, we need to be able to screen them for temperatures. The safest way to do that is with a touchless thermometer.”
Those with an extra touchless thermometer seeking to donate can bring the thermometers to the security entrance at the Emergency Department on the University Boulevard side of DCH’s Tuscaloosa Campus. There will be a labeled box on a table by the door, supervised by entrance security personnel.
“The donated thermometers will be sanitized and promptly put into use.”
